Ray Pluto (Denis Leary) has many problems. He is satirized in the tabloids as the "loser cop." His partner (Steve Buscemi) is starting to seem suspiciously attracted to him. A pair of screenwriters (Donald Faison, Keith Knobbs) across the hall keep bugging him for help. The superintendent of his building (Luis Guzmán) is stabbed by hoodlums hired by his own rebellious daughter (Melonie Diaz). To top it off, a sexually aggressive chiropractor (Elizabeth Hurley) may just be Ray's undoing.
